‘Sometimes it’s necessary to call out BS’: Richard Grenell pins a big FAKE NEWS ribbon on NBC News reporter’s ‘fact check’

As Twitchy told you Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence announced an agreement with Turkey that would lead to at least a temporary ceasefire in Syria. NBC News’ national security reporter Ken Dilanian then presented this “fact check” based on what he said he’s been told:

Fact check: Experts are already saying the US just granted Ergogan everything he wanted, all along, including exclusive rights to patrol the safe zone by air. They are calling this a total capitulation.

U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has previously not been shy about calling out the media, and he did so again when it came to Dilanian’s claim:

Sometimes it’s necessary to call out BS. This is one of those times:

Dilanian regularly makes stuff up. Most everyone knows this. His political agenda means he uses anonymous s regularly – and they are fake. He is an opinion writer and should be labeled as such. https://t.co/YqVqU74Gjm

It’s weird how the same people who bashed Trump as a warmonger are now bashing him for not being a warmonger.

He works for NBC. Nothing more to say.

“Experts say …”

First, the argument is lost when you reference anonymous “experts”. Second, anyone with first-hand experience knows that “the experts” aren’t.

The media hasn’t exactly had a banner month covering the Syria story so it’s no wonder their reports are often met with skepticism.
